Pro Tip of the Month

Watch out for this structure on your trees. These are tents created by the aptly named “tent caterpillars”. They will completely defoliate your trees and devastate your crop. Some regions are spraying for these infestations. Contact your local regional government to see if they have spray programs near you.
